Greetings and salivations, Sleepless. It is I, Olivia White, host of The NoSleep Podcast, back with another dose of terrifying, nail-biting horror. On this week's episode we have six skin-crawling tales about bigamist Bigfoots, twerking Thunderbirds, cuckolded Chupacabras and meme-loving Mongolian Death Worms.

Gabrielle is one of our less public-facing team members, but she has one of the most important jobs on the show, and so what better to give you an insight into her fantastic work than... A NOSLEEP BLOGCAST INTERVIEW?
So read on, kiddies, as transcribed from an exclusive found footage recording, we have a glimpse into the mind of... GABRIELLE LOUX, STORY EDITOR EXTRAORDINAIRE.
